    AAQI quilt needs a name; can you help?

    All AAQI quilts need names. Any suggestions for this little one? 9P squares are just little bits otherwise thrown away.

    Well you alternating block is the hourglass block, so I thought "Sand Through the Hourglass" I mean those pieces are so tiny they could be the sand! Lovely little quilt! Thanks for sharing. I've been thinking of sending in a couple little quilts myself.

    AAQI quilt needs a name

    How about "Straight Ahead" because of the arrows.

    Oh such great suggestions! Kind of like Little Bits, but Tiny Bits would work, "May I have a Little Square Dance?" Hmmm. Getting ready to post another one, though not as small this time

    Another nice one you've created for the AAQI, OKSGlad!!

    I'm not good with the name game ... of course, I like "Square Dance".
    And I do like QuiltNNan's "Checkered Past"
    Keeping with the Little Bits, and Tiny Bits ... what about "Tid Bits"? or "Itsy Bitsy Bits"?
    Or I could let tonight's supper menu inspire the name of "Leftovers, Again!"

    Regardless, it's a treasure for the AAQI!!

    I'm really leaning towards the "May I have this Square Dance?", but I can see Squares Squared for another quilt of a different pattern. Thanks all for the kinds words. I have 5 little ones ready to register and 4 to quilt and bind Want to send them all at once so had better get them finished!

    Wow! Nine at once?

    I think Tiny Bits would be a good name.

    You many not believe this, but I just planned a little quilt made up of hourglass blocks and snowball blocks, I love the large on point squares that come out with hourglass squares in alternate blocks.

    Good work!
    Reading, cooking, sewing in retirement! Heaven!

    Yeah, both Snowball and Hourglass are great connector blocks. Here's a larger quilt like this little one I made eons ago back when I still HQ'd. Squares on 1/2 and sewing not near as good!Name:  9P HGlas.jpg
